. thank you. guest: i think there's something to that. barack obama ran the most-and demonizing campaign in modern american history -- most negative and demonizing campaign. he was not able to defend his record and he had nothing to say about a second term agenda. he essentially devoted $1 billion to attacking mitt romney. there was even the most loathsome ad from the obama of super pac arguing he was responsible for the cancer death of the wife of a steel worker. this set new lows in american politics. the romney campaign tried to answer those things. there were some intrinsic disadvantages for the romney campaign. he was able to work within the finance laws that he was not able to do. romney was in the middle of a very contentious republican primary. he was able to defy romney very on. it is not easy to overcome those kind of attacks. i think it shows up mostly in the blue-collar workers. they did not come out largely for governor romney in the ways that the republican party needed to succeed. host: in politico, considering a senate run in the massachusetts special election ac

? thank you for taking my call. i appreciate it. i sit here and i remember president obama before he was mr. obama said water boarding is torture and terrible and we will raise and elevate the way we treat people. that different countries will respect us again. now he is turning around and not just water boarding them but telling american people that if there are american citizens in foreign countries, i am just going to kill them. i will not try them or bring them up on charges or do any of that. i would just wax them. it just opens a whole new can of worms of shredding the constitution and just another example of people in power that abuse power and think they are above the law. and i don't understand how they can do it and justify it. as far as secrecy, the government has been keeping secrets from us ever since the beginning of time. when the people fear the government, you have terry -- when the government fears the people, you have democracy. of this land is slowly being destroyed by big business and a large conglomerate of power groups and we are in big trouble. thank you for t
